From Amy Ruck 15 March 1
Dear Mr. Darwin
I am very sorry that I am unable to tell you anything about the ledges, as hitherto we have failed to discover any appearance of what you describe— The steep slopes here are perfectly smooth, & it is difficult to imagine any change taking place in them, as worm-casting are rarely to be seen on the hills.2
Thanking you for your letter I am | Your’s sincerely | Amy Ruck
Has failed to discover the signs of earthworm activity that CD described.
